Package gpart fails to build on powerpc


Question is: How do I compile a package for little endian on big endian proceessors?
Gpart is known to build on arm-el, ia64, i386, and amd64.
I'm using gcc 4.3 and have versions 3.4, 4.1, 4.2.
Build environment is debian lenny, powerpc.

'gpart' (( Not gparted )) :
""Guess PC disk partition table, find lost partitions""
............

This is, what I found ... so far ..

http://bugs.gentoo.org/19302 ,, http://bugs.gentoo.org/49878


http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubunt...verse/g/gpart/
> all architectures, incl. gpart_0.1h-4.1_powerpc.deb,
the patches e.g. gpart_0.1h-4.1.diff.gz, which probably has
a fix, an explanation ? for building "ppc"

Since I'll be running it from a ppc live disc, how do I add it to the build repos?

"AptGet Offline Repository" , may be ..

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ap...ine/Repository

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu

( The 'old archive' is no real repository ?, but I guess,
you will find a way to keep the files on an USB stick.)

It's going to be installed on a debian PPC disk.
Thanks for the heads up. I'll do the usual crying and moaning before I get it to work.
